Author's Description: Train Stopper is my TINS06 entry.
The plot of the game is very simple. The game takes place on a speeding train. An elderly lady has fallen on your train, and is in risk of falling off. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is it prevent her from falling off the train. You have 6 minutes and 6 seconds to play enough mini-games to bring your train to a stop. When you enter a mini-game (chosen at random each time) you will have to play through it. While you are playing, your timer goes down. If you run out of time, she will fall off and you will fail at your mission. However, if you complete the games in time, you will stop the train, and she will live - and you win! Each mini-game has a different gameplay, is worth a differing amount of MPH, and features it's own help information.
Gameplay is *very* simple. Once you are in the game, you will see the train speeding along the track. In the upper right corner you will see your countdown timer, and how fast the train is moving. To enter a random
mini-game, press the Home button. Each mini-game's gameplay differs, so be sure to press F1 (note: while the help window is open the timer does not countdown) and read up on how to play. If you decide you don't want to play a game, you can press End to return, however you will be given a 30 second penalty for not finishing the game. If you would like to choose a mini-game, instead of having a random one, press Tab. If you slow the train down in time, you will win. However, if you do not, you will lose the game.
Overall Rating: 3.0
